MCHS Grad Becomes USA Today Bestselling Author Dolores, Colorado native and resident and 1996 MCHS grad, Adriana Monique Alvarez started AMA publishing company after having a stillbirth in 2018. She discovered that sharing her story not only helped her heal, but also gave other women the chance to open up about on a taboo and often shameful topic. Little did she know that would become part of the story that would make her a USA Today bestselling author in the book, THE YOUNGER SELF LETTERS How Successful Leaders & Entrepreneurs Turned Trials Into Triumph (And How To Use Them To Your Advantage) released on Amazon and Barnes & Noble on June 13th.
Alvarez desired to create a book that went deeper than business knowledge and straight to the core of the human experience. She teamed up with fellow female owned publisher Michelle Kulp to publish The Younger Self Letters. The book debuted #1 on 38 bestseller lists internationally including Barnes & Noble. It went on to be the #4 book in the entire Kindle store selling over 6500 copies in one week.
In her chapter she shares, “When you cannot imagine that any good can come out of something, stand in a new place. Zoom out so you can see from a broader perspective, but most of all, immerse yourself in the emotion you are feeling. The more you attempt to escape it, the more aggressively it will hunt you down. Be mad; be sad; be disappointed. Explore every nook and cranny of how it feels and communicate it and express it as thoroughly as you can. In doing this, you will become one with it. Instead of being in an opposing position, you will be on the same side and together you will move forward. In the end, you will discover that your children-that you wanted more than anything-came here to fiercely guide you to your soul’s true calling.”
Alvarez expanded her company in the midst of the pandemic to include teaching other women how to start their own publishing company and wrote the book, HOW TO START A SIX FIGURE PUBLISHING COMPANY A Guide For Ambitious Female Entrepreneurs Who Are Ready To Transform A Formerly Male-Dominated Industry. Publishing has often been referred to as a gentleman’s profession and women have traditionally held lower paying positions. Ï am here to change that.” she says. Her trainings teach women how to start lucrative businesses and her top clients make more in a month that most people do in a year. She has also taught them how to listen to their hearts and do business from a place of connection and collaboration.
Her trainings have supported over 3000 women in 36 countries and she has been featured in Forbes, Grit Daily, America Daily Post, London Daily Post, and Influencive.
Adriana recently shared, “Every time one of my students or graduates publishes a title I feel so proud,” she says. “It is a great feeling and I didn’t expect to feel so emotional about it. Watching them create new titles, launch on Amazon, rise up the bestseller lists, it’s a win for all of us. They have a voice and they now have access to a platform and the support network they need to encourage, inspire, share and succeed. Best of all is that as we support each other, we inspire others to take the leap of faith, to believe they too can do it.”
The Younger Self Letters and How To Start A Six Figure Publishing Company were published by AMA Publishing and are available worldwide on Amazon.
